The 5 Saturday Sizzle with Austin Cassim
@austincassim - everywhere
From sine waves to live shows, Austin Cassim has got you covered. The young Electronic DJ/Producer started his musical journey at age 12 with DJ sets, as well as creating his own music. Now, more than a decade later, Austin has cemented himself in South Africa and its surrounding countries, as one of the most popular names in SA’s Dance Music Scene. Before the age of 21 Austin had already headlined 3 of SA’s biggest shows known as Ultra Music Festival, H2O and Ballito Rage. While many may see it as a challenge to be in the shadow of an older sibling, Austin joined forces with his elder brother, Kyle, to form CINIMIN - The award winning, multi-million streamed duo.
